Artist Statement
The colorless yellow flowers sleep furiously...
The individual words make sense and are arranged according to proper grammatical rules, yet the result is nonsense! Such as many things in our life (especially with these increasing amounts of social media)...look awesome together, make you feel like you are about to hear or see something important, but if you concentrate a little bit before submitting to the flood, the NONSENSE will punch you right in the face!
Our project simply comes as a wake-up call; let’s think before getting involved, because it’s such a crisis if the nonsense does make sense!
